Ever wanted to know what it felt like to play an Assassin’s Creed game in VR? Well, Ubisoft has just announced Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR, an upcoming action VR game that will let players experience the franchise’s iconic historical action combat and gameplay through virtual reality. The game is set to launch this Holiday 2023 on Meta Quest 2 and Meta Quest 3.
The trailer, which was made using CGI, can be found below:
Here’s the official description of the game taken from the YouTube video:
Become the Assassin in Assassin’s Creed® Nexus VR. Embody legendary Assassins in an all-new story built exclusively for VR. Parkour and climb freely across open maps as you decide how to achieve the objectives. Use real world motions with a variety of weapons as you fight reactive enemies. Maneuver stealthily by hiding in the shadows or blending in amongst civilians. Experience the rush of air assassinations and the daunting leap of faith. Innovative VR functionality provides the ultimate immersive experience with best-in-class comfort features to help with vertigo or fear of heights.
The trailer was made using CGI and doesn’t actually feature any gameplay footage, so we don’t really know what the game actually looks like based on the footage we’re given. Still, Assassin’s Creed is a franchise that seems to suit VR pretty well, and with other upcoming AC titles in Mirage and Codename Jade, fans of the series will have something to look forward to no matter what platform they play on.
